When my almost 20 year old was home for Thanksgiving, he was putting the "encore" smoked turkey on everything - encore hamburgers & pizza and nachos as well as other things he could find like salsa, BBQ sauce, bacon, red peppers, etc. We were joking that he will have a restaurant that serves 3 things with 50 topping choices - hamburgers, pizza and nachos. I think this may be one of those toppings.

Could you taste the vinegar? Probably not with all the sweets in it.

Who needs scented candles when your house can smell like bacon?

My oldest used to tell the girls in the lockers around him (in middle school), that if they really wanted to attract a boy, they wouldn't spray that perfume stuff that was floating onto him. They should smell like cookies or chocolate or bacon.

LOL my son said the same thing - cookies or bacon no chocolate but he'd be attracted to a choc scented gal too :)

The vinegar just adds a lovely acidic quality that is so needed otherwise the jam would almost be cloyingly sweet. Sort of like adding salt to cookies or lemon juice when making jam, both of which are necessary.

Man, I am a condiment addict! Seriously. Make my own mustards, numerous ketchups, BBQ sauces, nuoc cham, everything except for Worcestershire and fish sauce which cannot be done. Oh, yes. Also my own vanilla extract. I just can't stop!

Perhaps in one of our communes, we could make this restaurant . My son would be fine with it being gluten-free. You could make the sauces to offer. We might need to go above 50 topping choices!

Oh, yes. I could re-create that and so could you. What I would do is oven roast tomatoes with fresh thyme, season and blend with a chile en adobo and homemade mayo. I do this type of thing all the time! I almost never buy condiments or sauces or dips.

There is just something soooooo darned good about fries and dip!

Cool. Women everywhere will be rubbing their necks with bacon slabs now. It will be "trendy".

Dinner tonight--simple (I am not feeling so spectacular today :( ) :

Meatloaf

Sauteed spinach

Acorn squash

Sad that you are not feeling well today. Here are some hugs for you. (((())) Feel 'em?

Man, I LOVE meatloaf. It makes such superb leftovers encores.

The rubbing-necks-with-bacon trend has come and gone in Alberta. We're eons ahead of you. How do you think I attracted my husband? :lol:

If its my son's restaurant, it would have to be in Colorado. Maybe besides burgers, nachos & pizzas with 100 toppings we could also add salads. Alot of those toppings are good on salad and salad dressing is good on hamburgers. Maybe some fries & baked potatoes with toppings?

Have It Your Way

Don't Go Topless (maybe a better motto than a name)

How about "As You Like It"? That is what I want to call my cooking class/home catering "business" so no one can steal it. <_< I love Shakespeare and I love food. They go hand in hand. Well, sorta. If we have 100 toppings on whatever, it would be applicable - as customers like it.

Good! "Don't go topless!" with a picture of a topless cabana boy could be our slogan.

Brown rice pasta with sauce of smashed butternut squash, bacon and chicken stirred through, little bit of strong cheddar on top.

Surprisingly good :)

Bacon jam would work with it too.

Why, certainly! You absolutely MUST make this.

http://leitesculinar...-bacon-jam.html

om gosh - that sounds divine!!! i'm putting it onto my "if i have time before Christmas" list :) husband/cabana boy (you guys are overthinking it lolz - they can spritz and deliver cocktails in the summer and shovel in the winter. problem solved!) filled up the freezer with venison so he is going to make deer jerky for Christmas presents. he has his own recipe and i have no idea what it is although it does contain worcestershire sauce - everybody, and i mean EVERYBODY loves it. if i can coax it out of him i will share it!!

i had about 8 pages to read to catch up with y'all. no, chicken and waffles is not a northeastern thing. never heard of it before i moved to tennessee. my youngest (the gifted and talented writer - la, la, la, la, laaaaaa..... - lolz who will probably spend the rest of her life in college therefore a messed up fafsa is in my future for a very long time!!) swears that if she ever dies and goes to heaven, she will eat chicken waffles every day. glad to hear you are ok, loves2 - i am procrastinating my next mammogram - husband doesn't mind massaging as long as boobies and 'baking' is involved ;)

glutened myself (DOH!!) on the wednesday night b4 thanxgiving (licked a ladle putting 'shared' crab dip away - cracker crumbssss!!!!) but it didn't hit until saturday when the 20 family members visiting (and 3 dogs, 1 banished cat and 2 goldfish) were beginning to drift back to their respective home states so, not so bad. i spent the rest of the week sewing and napping alternately. this week i finally felt up to cooking.

buffalo chicken meatballs w/gorgonzola dressing (celery sticks) and mac n chz soup

shrimp (manager's special! wild caught! cheaper than chicken!) saltimbocca (had prosciutto i had to use up) w/fried polenta rounds

pork paprika w/potato pancakes (he likes them better gluten-free - crispier and they reheat so well!) and fried pickled red cabbage (canned from our garden)

yakiniku w/jasmine rice and a ton of green onions (garden is still growing - green onions/scallions are as big as leeks!)

i have said good-bye to him this morning - he is off trailer-trucking. so i have some time alone to rid the fridge of 'encores' - i better get eating if i'm going to be muu-muu worthy..... :D

PLUS you posted all your dinners

PLUS you were glutened in the process!

I APPLAUD YOU!!!

I am stunned frankly, because I am a techno doofus ---and anytime I try something like that...it does not work.

Glad he is still clapping. :)

I am making white pizza for the hubs and we used Bette Hagman's recipe (thank you Sylvia) I turned her onto the bread, she turned me onto the pizza dough. Cool. And God bless Bette Hagman--the queen mother of gluten free baking. (if any of you do not know who she is---read about her!)

So, we made a 4 cheese, arugula and garlic pizza....smells outrageous.

    • When it's that high, it almost always means Celiac.  Sure, you can have Crohns, too.  Just like you can have Celiac and diabetes, the common cold or a hang nail.  I wouldn't jump to Chrohns.  I don't think the tTg really has anything to do with Chrohns?  Where did you see that?  Sometimes, a slightly elevate tTg can be elevated from other issues, but >100 is not a " slightly elevated" reading
    • Hi! I'm new here, and I'm looking for some information because I'm having a hard time finding it.  Over Labor Day weekend I got some kind of intestinal bug. I didn't think much of it until the D persisted once a day up til now. I tried a priobiotic but that didn't help much. I have bad anxiety and began to think that I was just anxious and stressed. No fever, no pain, all bloodwork is normal, so no infection or anemia. My mother has 5 siblings and 3 have celiac. One other one had a high result on a blood test but was never officially diagnosed and insists she doesn't have it. So I went to my local health fair and got the ttg-iga test, just in case. My result came back at >100. So I have called and scheduled a visit with a GI for next week. Aside from the recent intestinal issues I have never thought that I had any signs of celiac. I do have dermatographism and have had that since I was 20 (I am 28). I have severe anxiety. I had PUPPPS when I was pregnant with my daughter and it was miserable. It looks much like the skin rashes that celiacs have. Again, didn't think much of it. Because of my anxiety I am terrified that this high blood test is from something else, like crohn's. I don't have diabetes, my liver and thyroid numbers are fine. I think it's much more plausible that this is celiac because of my family history. But my anxiety says "what if it's crohns?" Does anyone have any insight? Is it true that the ttg iga can be elevated from crohns and not celiac? Is >100 pretty definitive of celiac? I didn't know if crohns was the cause if the number would be this high.  I'm just freaked out. 
    • This does say it is for NCGS....so not  for Celiacs.  There is a drug being developed that may actually break down the gluten in the stomach before it hits the intestines.  However, that is still in clinical trials.
    • could be from your neck, or it is, literally, in your head. perhaps a scan is needed.
    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
